RoSPA and gas charity launch project

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and Gas Safe Charity have introduced  a new programme, raising awareness of carbon monoxide (CO) dangers.

This scheme may prompt firms to introduce warning signs, as there are around 50 accidental deaths, 200 non-fatal poisonings and 4,000 A&E visits each year as a result of CO.

Les Philpott, chairman of Gas Safe Charity, said: "Awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide has been improving in recent years, but the number of CO poisoning cases still being recorded shows there is no room for complacency."

Mr Philpott continued by saying that Gas Safe Charity is delighted to be working on the new scheme with RoSPA.

Recently, Process and Control Today reported that the British Safety Council has introduced a new health and safety systems review.

It will analyse the health and safety measures of firms in an effort to lower the likelihood of accidents for companies in the retail and manufacturing industries.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801235999-ADNFCR
